Chief Okeke Ogene further urged Ndigbo living in other parts of the country to follow suit, to reduce the burden of loss suffered through targeted attacks in some parts of Nigeria.

 

He emphasized that the Southeast has strategic and viable markets that can attract patronage from various parts of the world and contribute to the development of the region.

The recent bills signed by President Muhammadu Buhari, which have invested more powers in states for infrastructural development, were also lauded by Okeke Ogene.

 

 

He stressed the need for quality roads that connect the states in the South East, international airports, railways and seaports to facilitate the expected high volume of trade and commerce. He advocated for a stronger partnership between the government and the private sector on infrastructural development.
